The President's mandates gives medical systems and companies cover. I think that was his intent.
The President knows this will be tied up in court for months if not years. Before the cases are resolved Covid may be over.
But meanwhile all companies including Medical Companies now have a fig leaf to do what many feared to do before now; mandate a vaccine. And blame it on the President. Biden knows that. And that it will save lives.
That, folks, is what leadership looks like. No Bullshit, no fear leadership.
Yep. We are seeing the real deal. Leadership.
Never just doing what is right and good.
Makes me cringe.
Which it wouldnt have hurt for it to go that way.
Not easy to second guess all that went on behind the scenes, so once again I trust what decisions he decides to make
Companies will immediately start enforcing vaccines for their employees. That, after all, is really the goal.
Best leadership decisions Ive seen in years. How many politicians would actually invite companies to blame them for doing the right thing and saving lives while pissing off lots of people. Damned few.
Biden does not play; this is what American leadership should look like in all of our future presidents. Thank you for being effective, compassionate and competent!!
This leaves out a significant number of the population. People retired, working for smaller companies, students, unemployed, disabled and many others.
There are laws that mandate businesses run a safe workplace and that gives him the authority in this case.
But even I would be against a president being able to mandate I get vaccinated.
that the mandate for medical systems is even taken up by SCOTUS (unlike the 100+ employer mandate) assuming it is even challenged. CMS dictates almost everything about medical care, credentialling providers, etc. (see Joint Commission), this isn't a big change but it gives cover to admin's who are worried about retaining workers or state owned facilities in R states.
already mandating vaccines to keep employees from getting sick and avoid lawsuits for not maintaining a safe work place. But Bidens mandate probably helped some make the decision easier.
Ticks me off that so many are vaccine stupid, such that a mandate is necessary.
